NEW DELHI: The Central Bureau of Investigation on Saturday conducted "surprise checks" on the premises of various Kendriya Bhandar outlets in Delhi in connection with its probe into alleged irregularities in purchase of various items by the state-run retail facility.

The sleuths also seized certain relevant documents related to purchase, tenders and sale records from these stores besides picking up samples of masala items and others items from these stores for quality checks.

Sources said the latest action is part of a preliminary probe against the largest consumer cooperative society of the country, which operates nationwide outlets, and a formal complaint could be lodged if any allegations of corruption are found true.

CBI sources said agency sleuths made checks at the head office of the body, a central governments' employee cooperative society, in south Delhi's Madangir area and three outlets of the same in Pragati Vihar, Sarojini Nagar and Laxmibai Nagar areas.

"The agency conducted surprise checks on Kendriya Bhandar premises as part of its probe into alleged violations of guidelines of purchase policy rules, general financial rules and CVC guidelines that due processes were not being followed in procurement of items for sale at these outlets," said R K Gaur, press information officer in CBI.

Rivals heap scorn on AAP for it’s “immature politics”

NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party on Saturday drew flak and ridicule over its internal turmoil from rival parties which asked it to put its house in order and deliver on promises made to people of Delhi without wasting the opportunity with its "immature" politics.

Terming the continued tussle within Aam Admi Party(AAP) as a "struggle for power" and "opportunism", BJP said Delhi will not see any progress in such a situation and those who were elected to power will have to answer the public for the same.

Congress said the "laboratory of AAP experiment is on fire" and accused AAP chief and chief minister Arvind Kejriwal of demeaning his party and the political class.

Taking a dig at AAP, former Jammu and Kashmir CM and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah said it was becoming more like "older parties".

The CPM, which had come out in open support of AAP in the Delhi assembly elections, however termed the ongoing tussle in AAP as an internal affair of the party but said the rift should not affect the welfare of the people of Delhi who had voted the party to power.

"The ongoing tussle is the internal affair of the party and they must resolve it so that the people of Delhi don't have to suffer," CPM politburo member and Rajya Sabha MP Sitaram Yechury told reporters in Jammu.

Finance Minister and senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley said, "With a lot of expectation and high hopes, people of Delhi had chosen the government. The promises which AAP and its leaders have made with public, they must fulfill them," Jaitley told reporters in Varanasi. "They should not let this historical opportunity go waste just because of their immature politics."

BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli said the turmoil in AAP is basically a power struggle. "It is a fight of opportunism," he said.

Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi said, it is the people of Delhi who are suffering the most due to AAP's internal turmoil. "First AAP should set its house in order and start delivering in Delhi. That is our concern, Delhi citizens' concern and Delhi community's concern. And this kind of laundering goes on in open spectacle every day... then I think Delhi is the biggest sufferer," Singhvi said, adding the allegations and counter allegations by rival factions in AAP are "extremely serious."

Another Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha said, "I understand that AAP is an experiment. But right now it so happens that the laboratory is on fire. That's all."

Man ran fake notes ring in 3 states, held

NEW DELHI: A man was arrested on Saturday by the special cell for smuggling fake currency notes into the country. The accused, identified as Shahjahan Sheikh, was running a wide network of fake Indian currency notes from Delhi, Gujarat and Maharashtra.

A key player, Sheikh, was wanted for smuggling of FICNs from Bangladesh.

"He was arrested after a long operation carried out by our team in Kaliachak village in Malda, West Bengal. He was the most wanted Indian kingpin in this organized crime and was working with hostile agencies to destabilize the economy. A better understanding of FICN operations and modules active at present is expected to come to light during Shahjahan's interrogation," DCP Sanjeev Yadav said.

Shahjahan used different aliases in dealing with different retail chains and never met any unknown client directly, police said.

Some dues paid, but stir on

NEW DELHI: Following large-scale protests by sanitation workers, the East Delhi Municipal Corporation on Saturday evening released their salaries for the month of February. However, the employees refused to call off their strike citing non-payment of dues.

"We have released their salaries for the month of February. It is evident that EDMC is going through a financial crisis, yet arrangements have been made to release their salaries. Now, we expect them to get back to work,'' said Amit Yadav, commissioner of East corporation.

The sanitation workers also threatened to intensify their strike. "We will intensify the strike from Monday,'' said Rajender Mewati, president of Delhi Pradesh Safai Madoor Union.

Earlier in the day, some sanitation workers had dumped garbage on Vikas Marg near Laxmi Nagar and neighbouring areas, leading massive traffic jams.

"The main road was jammed for nearly two hours. In the fight between sanitation staff and civic agencies, it is we who are suffering. The dhalaos are overflowing and in some areas, the workers have dumped garbage on the main road," said Kapil, a resident of Laxmi Nagar.

Traffic police personnel said movement of vehicles was affected due to waste dumped on the main road. "The traffic flow was affected for nearly 2-3 hours,'' said a police officer.

Apologizing for the inconvenience caused to common people, Mewati said, "We don't want to cause any inconvenience to public. But we will not withdraw our protest till the corporations pay us. Most of us have not got salaries for the past two-three months. How will we survive without money? The Delhi government and municipal corporations have to find out a way to pay salaries, else we won't work."

Some of the sanitation staff protested outside AAP MLA Nitin Tyagi's residence. "He misbehaved with one worker and got him arrested. From Monday onwards, we will protest outside CM Arvind Kejriwal and deputy CM Manish Sisodia's residences. We will dump garbage outside their houses. Even Mayors and other municipal officials won't be spared,'' added Mewati.

AAP NC meet begins, Lokpal told to skip to avoid confrontation

Written By kom nampultig on Sabtu, 28 Maret 2015 | 22.10

NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party's internal Lokpal Admiral L Ramdas has shot off a letter to the party after being asked not to attend today's crucial national council meeting to "avoid confrontation".

The AAP national council meeting, which began at a resort in Kapashera here this morning, is expected to take a decision on the fate of founder-members Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan whose expulsion is being demanded by Arvind Kejriwal loyalists after talks between the warring factions failed.

Yadav made the letter public on social media ahead of the NC meet, saying that he conveyed his "apologies" and sought Ramdas's permission in doing so.

In the letter, Ramdas mentioned the SMS he had received from AAP General Secretary Pankaj Gupta, on which several reasons were stated by the party for its decision, as it was "party internal affair" and "as indicated earlier term of Lokpal need to be renewed in the next NE (National Executive meet)".

Gupta also wrote that only MLAs and MPs have been invited apart from authorised NC members to the meeting and "no one else has been invited". "So (we) request you to not come to the meeting to avoid any confrontation," he wrote.

This came days after a section of AAP leaders expressed their displeasure over his continuance as the party ombudsman for his letter last month criticising the leadership.

In a letter to PAC, AAP's highest decision making body, ahead of the National Executive meeting on February 26, Ramdas noted that there were two camps emerging within the top leadership and had asked the party to consider 'one man, one post' arrangement.

Miffed over the snub, Ramdas said he had visited from his village in Maharashtra to attend the meet, however, he would not attend the meet to "honour" the party's request. "I am quite aware that the NC is a party internal affair. I am also aware that special invitees/observers have been invited to all bodies from PAC, to NEC to NC in the past," he said.

Taking umbrage to the reference to the need for term of Lokpal to be renewed, Ramdas said that the party had "in effect" already extended his initial term as Lokpal when it had asked to investigate the credentials of candidates from Uttar Pradesh and Haryana prior to the filing of nominations for the Lok Sabha elections in 2014.

Mumbai don aide had 15 days to kill businessman

NEW DELHI: Had it not been for swift police action, the owner of Relaxo Footwear would have been shot by the hired guns of Mumbai don Ejaz Lakdawala, sources have said.

Lakdawala's north India operative, Yusuf Mia, who has been arrested by crime branch, revealed during interrogation that Lakdawala had given him a 15-day deadline.

Lakdawala, who called up Yusuf from a UK number, categorically told him to either carry out the killing at the businessman's house in Delhi or in his factories in Bahadurgarh. Yusuf told police that the don said another aide had been given instructions to kill him (Yusuf) if he could not complete the task on time.

Following this, Yusuf had rushed to Punjab to bail out his shooter Sonu alias Rajender who had been arrested by the Punjab Police in a drug trafficking case and was lodged in Kapurthala Jail.

Yusuf had hired five Jalandhar-based shooters to carry out three killings on Lakdawala's instructions. Apart from Relaxo's owner, Yusuf was to eliminate the owner of Suleman Mithaiwala, a sweet shop in Mumbai, and Haroon Builder, the brother of Iqbal Mirchi, a close aide of Dawood Ibrahim.

When both Mumbai killing attempts were botched up and the third was taking time, Lakdawala got furious with Yusuf and reprimanded him over phone for doing a shoddy job. These calls were intercepted by security agencies.

Driving curbs in CR Park from next week

NEW DELHI: With a surge in the number of vehicles in Greater Kailash-II and Chittaranjan Park over the past few months, Delhi Traffic Police has come up with a traffic circulation plan for the area.

In the first phase, they have planned to allow only one-way traffic on Gurdwara Road, which connects Greater Kailash-II to Alaknanda Road. Henceforth, one may drive into it from Outer Ring Road but cannot travel back along the same route. The arrangement will be made effective from Monday.

"We will make this stretch one-way on a trial basis. If it is successful, plans will also be made for other stretches," special commissioner, traffic, Muktesh Chander, said. Traffic police are now consulting resident welfare associations on the matter.

Traffic officials have also planned a few other diversions in the area to reduce traffic pressure that has significantly increased since inauguration of the Sarita Vihar underpass. The plan is to allow vehicles to enter Gurdwara Road from Outer Ring Road via Savitri Cinema, but not travel back along the same route. Drivers will be asked to take Alaknanda Road and reach GK-II Main Road (from near M-block market) and head towards Savitri Cinema. "On-road parking reduces the four-lane Gurdwara Road to a two-lane thoroughfare," said a traffic police officer.

Traffic on this stretch has gone up significantly in the past few months since inauguration of the Sarita Vihar underpass. In a bid to avoid the busy Outer Ring Road-Nehru Place crossing, drivers choose to take the roads through GK-II, resulting in traffic mess. The aim is to streamline flow of vehicles in the area. The three traffic signals on Gurdwara Road, near Bipin Chandra Pal Avenue, 80 Feet Road crossing and Road Number 10 crossing would also be removed eventually.

A traffic police officer said that vehicles from Chittaranjan Park going towards Savitri Cinema will be asked to take the K-block road near Market No. 3. A separate plan is being made to decongest Chittaranjan Park, he added.

Cheque bounce case: Man jailed, asked to pay Rs 1.6 lakh damages

NEW DELHI: A man was sentenced to two months in jail in a cheque bounce case by a city court, which noted that he had opportunity to pay but failed to do so.

Additional Sessions Judge Reetesh Singh also asked Yogesh Kumar Sansanwal to pay a compensation of Rs 1.6 lakh to south Delhi resident and complainant Rakesh Sharma.

The order came on an appeal filed by Sansanwal against a trial court order sentencing him to undergo two months jail term and to pay Rs 1.6 lakh to Sharma.

The convict had approached the sessions court claiming that he was willing to make payment of the cheque amount and prayed for mercy saying more opportunities ought to have been given to him.

The court, however, dismissed his appeal and upheld the jail term saying, "the appellant (Sansanwal) offered to make payment of cheque amount as well as further settle amount to complainant (Sharma) several times before the trial court, for which his statement was recorded on three separate occasions, but he failed to do so".

"The trial court has already given more than sufficient opportunities to the appellant to have made payment of the settled amount. Even before this court, the appellant could have made the payment of the compensation as granted by the trial court in the impugned order but he has not done so," it said.

Sansanwal, who knew Sharma, had borrowed Rs one lakh from him in 2011 and issued a cheque. But when it was presented, the cheque was dishonoured by the bank with the remark 'account blocked'.

Thereafter, Sharma tried to approach Sansanwal but he did not respond. He then issued a legal notice to Sansanwal for the payment and followed it up by filing a complaint before the court under the provisions of the Negotiable Instruments Act in November 2011.

After that also, Sansanwal issued several cheques to pay the money to Sharma, all of which bounced.
